Good Order And Discipline

The excommunicated founder and leader of annual protests against U.S. military training for Latin American soldiers—
protests in which Jesuit and other Catholic universities have played a major role—has been ordered by his Maryknoll superior to recant his vocal support of women’s ordination. In a letter dated March 18 but disclosed yesterday, Roy Bourgeois, who has been automatically excommunicated 
and then laicized following his participation in a 2008 ceremony to “ordain” a Catholic woman, was given 15 days to recant or he will be formally dismissed from the Maryknoll Fathers.
